A Guess
« on: May 27, 2014, 01:37:39 pm »
I wish for somebody to verify my assumption.

As you may/may not know, I am 13 (and a few days). So, I believe I do not have access to certain parts of the site. This is all just a guess, but I don't suppose that the following categories exist: "Adult Artwork" and "Adult Role-Playing".

I have collected enough evidence (which I will give on demand) to convince me that these exist, and I also believe that I know what sort of things are posted in them.

No. Those boards do not exist. Notice that the website is called "Furry Teens" Therefore the community mainly consists or is around the ages of 13-18 most of the time.There are rules on this site that says to keep it PG-13 on number 3. There's only the normal Artwork board and the normal Role-Playing board. From what I've seen and my knowledge, you can access more boards the more you participate actively on the forum. And what type of evidence led you to believe that these kinds of explicit boards exist? Kinda makes me curious.

2. If your art contains adult-oriented material, post it in the Adult Artwork board.

I kind of went from there.

No, there's no adult boards on here. None you can access or request membership for.
This website is a strict PG-13 as of this moment. Although I'm curious, what evidence do you have? (Note: I think there WAS an adult section at one point, just not anymore)

2. If your art contains adult-oriented material, post it in the Adult Artwork board.

Check the date, that was 10 years ago.  :blush-fox:

But wow, well done going back that far!

From the date of the quote from Natasha, it was from 2004 but if you look at the site rules, it was updated 4 years later which led me to assume that if there was ever an "adult" section it was probably removed a long time ago. I've been here for a while and yet I haven't seen an "adult" section anywhere.

The reason I came to this conclusion is mainly from that quote. I continued on my thinking (I think a lot. I don't like talking about thinking though. Last time I did somebody asked me what drugs I was taking.) and, with the supplied evidence that there is (or, as I now realise was) an Adult Art section, I concluded that there may be an Adult Roleplay section.

Another thing which made me think this is a quote I saw on #teenagefurs: "No yiffing". I learnt of the furry fandom from googling "yiff", and despite never returning to those terrible webpages, what it is remains lodged in my mind. The fact that they had to post a reminder that you may not yiff made me conclude that it was a common event for furries to take part in pornographic role-plays. This, of course, made me think that an Adult Role-playing section may be present.

There used to be adult boards but they were removed about a half-year ago due to extreme inactivity. And that this site became more centered on specifically 13-18 teenagers. (A lot of people usually leave after they enter the 20+ age).

Well, that's one of the first times where my thinking came to a close-to-true conclusion.

I'm 20 and I haven't seen any adult boards on this site. There are some on other sites. It's not really guesswork, they're full of yiff and sexual rp. That's what classifies them as "adult." This site, however, is designed for teens, the majority of whom are minors so it's not likely the admins would allow that kind of thing.

There used to be a invite-only board for 18+ year old users, but it was very inactive and was shut down a while ago because of that, and whatever text you're referring to just hasn't been updated since then.

I dont get the why you felt the need to make this thread? You're way underage, so there's no need to publicly announce you think there are adult boards and you want to know whats in them.
Even if there were 18+ boards still, it's still not anything relevant to you.

They weren't removed for being extremely inactive. We would never shut down a board due to inactivity, not if it could provide some utility to our members. We were forced to remove them for legal reasons back in June 18, 2013. Because users of FT are often under the age of eighteen, a good majority of the website couldn't access it and we developed a screening process of giving users entry to it. Associating a website primarily intended for teenagers with such content and the risk of underage members gaining access to it proved to be risky in a legal sense and was honestly more trouble than it was worth, especially given how a large amount of the boards were hardly ever used. It was for the best.

You didn't really miss out on much. As it's been stated, these boards seldom received any content and from my own personal perspective, always had a somewhat awkward atmosphere. It's funny because I waited years in anticipation so that I could gain entry just because I had never seen them before. I was sorely disappointed when I finally gained entry to them back in 2012.

What everyone has said about us having Adult boards a while ago is correct. I've edited the board where that quote came from, thank you for pointing that out  :fox-:P:
